When your dog gets an ear infection, it’s a huge chore.
It smells bad, it makes him grumpy, and it makes you grumpy.
Mainly because there’s no clear cut method of how to treat it. What’s worse…half the time they don’t even work.
There’s gotta be an easier way.
As it turns out, there just might be. A safer one too. What treatment am I talking about?
I’ll share it with you in a moment. But first…
The Traditional Advice, and Why You Should Ignore It
Here are 3 treatments you might be familiar with. They all work – to an extent – yet they’re all dangerous. Here’s what I mean:
It’s the standard treatment prescribed by a vet. It’s expensive, and as well all know, there are a number of dangers associated with the overuse of antibiotics.
2. Cleaning by Hand
Some sources will tell you to get in there with a cotton ball and some rubbing alcohol, and clean your dog’s ear out by hand.
This method is not only inconsistent, it’s dangerous. The ear is fragile. Poking around in the wrong spot can do some serious damage, so why risk it?
3. Colloidal Silver
Just the name of it sounds dangerous. Doesn’t it? Turns out, it’s not safe at all. But it’s extremely effective at curing ear infections, so a lot of people use it. Don’t be one of them.
Why pass on these 3 effective treatments? Because there’s a better one. One that works just as well, if not better than the others, minus all the risks.
I’m talking of course about…

In the dog owner’s community, coconut oil has recently been building an impressive reputation. Its seems, there’s an ever-growing list ways that coconut oil makes for a healthier happier dog.
Time to add one more item to that list: It’s great for curing ear infections.
It’s safe. It’s natural. We’ve used it for thousands of years on ourselves and our pets…not a single health risk associated.

The best part of this treatment is that the process is so simple. All you need is…

Just put a few drops of coconut oil in your dogs ear – a few times a day, for a few days.
Seriously…that’s it. And that ear infection should clear up in no time. 🙂
